in the mid 90’s I took my first interest in Texas wines.
I didn’t know much about them at the time, but after being introduced to
a few by a good friend, I was hooked. I
was surprised at just how good some of these wines were. I wanted to become very knowledgeable about
wines, you know, the guru, the one that the friends call when they don’t have a
clue how to impress the new gal, or impress the wife during an anniversary
dinner. So, I took it upon myself to
study and drink only Texas
wines. It’s been a tough
job (for me and my liver…), but heck, someone has got to do it. It’s for Texas!
traveled to many parts of the state, talked to many of the winemakers, and
drank a lot of Texas
wines. Throughout these last 15 or so
years, I’ve learned a great deal about which wineries need a little more
practice, which ones are hit and miss, and which ones consistently produce
great wines. Are there some Texas wines
that rank among the “not so good?” Yes.
The key is to know which of the wineries have the level of experience and quality
that produce a superior bottle of wine.
This is where I can help.
I first got started, Texas
had about 35 Wineries. Today, there are
well over 150, and the number continues to grow each year. They range from the very small “boutique”
specialty wineries to the large-scale production types. I find that the
small to medium sized wineries produce the very best, and most unique wines in
offer my years of experiences with Texas
wines as a guide to making suggestions for an enjoyable dinner or Wine Tasting,
helping people and businesses capitalize on great Texas wines, and to help further the Texas
